Come stay with us and have an adventure of a lifetime and in exchange, we will come stay with you, and see NZ! Dave and Karen Gillespie, pilots from Saskatoon Saskatchewan Canada would like to trade time with NZ homeowners and aviation enthusiasts. Visit Canada and be based out of our beautiful 80 acre aerodrome property complete with airplanes, vehicles, and boats. We have a 3 bdrm home with guest accommodation and also a 1bdrm apartment in our 30x60 hangar. We would check you out in our aircraft if experienced. We're interested in having guests from May to Nov 2017 or 2018. In exchange, we would visit NZ with one of our aircraft in Nov 2017-April 2018, and stay with you in your home or guest suite. We would prefer being on or near an aerodrome with hangar accommodation, should we ship an aircraft over, but are open to anything. Our summers in Saskatchewan are filled with long sunny days and great flying weather. You will be able to experience Canada from the same perspective as we residents do. Meet new friends and pilots. Fly to interesting locations. Have the adventure of a lifetime! In the past, we traded homes with an English pilot for the summer of 2016. Shipped our prototype DHC-1 deHavilland Chipmunk from Canada to the UK in Nov and arrived ourselves in April. Spending the summer attending many great aviation events and meeting hundreds of nice people was a summer to remember. We want to experience the same adventure in NZ and hope there are like-minded pilots who would like to visit Canada.
